“Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff is getting tired of everyone beating up on his agency.  If critics don’t like what the department is doing, Chertoff offers a challenge: Come up with a better idea.

“Should we eliminate the watch lists? Would you then get on an airplane, or put your children on an airplane in that kind of environment? Would you open the border? What would you do, then, when a terrorist or a drug dealer came in? Would you raise your hand and say, ‘I take responsibility for that’?” Chertoff asked.” (NPR)
